Special View Name

tablesONLINE sees tables in pairs, each consisting of a Data Table and a View. The Data Table contains data and the View defines the format of the data in the table.

From a user’s perspective, the Data Table and the View appear as one table. For purposes of tablesONLINE, however, they are defined as separate entities.

Unless a special View name is specified here, tablesONLINE generates a View name based on the specified table name. Use the Special View Name field to specify a View name other than the one generated by tablesONLINE/ISPF.
